Unmissable place to visit in Luxembourg, the Old City is located on the hill and looks down for some wonderful views. The cobbled alleys are perfectly kept, packed with charme, history and overall pleasant to walk along.

Wandering the old city was really fun. The way is mostly around the old city, and took a solid hour and a half. Good with kids as long as your kids don't mind walking. This is a UNESCO world heritage site!

Paris, France

A leap in history that contrasts with the modernity of the new neighborhoods of the city. Bucolic slope of the center of the Luxembourg capital. It is hard to believe when you walk around it that you are in the center of a capital city. In addition it is possible to extend the ride long kilometers along the Alzette. The remains of the casemates and fortifications that have passed through the centuries, the green nature, the river, are the charm of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is very pleasant to walk in the Grund, a low town that is housed in the fortifications and is also called low town. Small pearl to see, the Neumünster Abbey became cultural center of Luxembourg.
